The Women’s Legal and Human Rights Bureau (WLB) is a feminist legal non-government organization composed of women’s rights activists and advocates. They are professionals in the various disciplines of the law and social science, social work and community development addressing women’s issues and concerns.

Founded in 1990, WLB’s main thrust is to engage in feminist legal advocacy work –pursuing policies and programs that uphold the rights and interests of Filipino women, conducting information- education communication campaigns to raise public awareness and actions on women’s issues, undertaking training and research with other women’s groups to build knowledge and capabilities for stronger campaigning and advocacy engagements on women’s rights; and promoting alternative feminist lawyering in line with the institutional mission to defend and advance women’s rights.

Our current challenge is to strategically expand our focus to include women’s economic, social and cultural rights as part of our advocacy. WLB seeks to maximize gains won by women in such arenas as the Committee for the Elimination of Discrimination Against Women, other UN agencies and international organizations.
